Fashion is dumb

A model displays a creation from the Spring/Summer 2009 collection from designer Giles as part of London Fashion Week, in London, Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2008.


I mean, come on, what the hell is this Iron Man/Dark Helmet mash-up? Give me a fucking break.

I could've used that mask to conceal the faces of a couple of the less savory ladies who went up the stairs with me at Unit M back in the day. In fact, a lot of guys in the house could've used it.

and, in the interest of balance, many of the ladies would likely say the same thing of their suitors. not of any of us, mind you, handsome devils as we are.

Geoff said...

Not me. I only hooked up with models in college.

rob said...

i think they're called mannequins, actually.

Geoff said...

No, they were all models...they were used as the basis for the girls Buffalo Bill used to make his woman suit out of in Silence of the Lambs.

And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothings gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
Well still have each other
Nothings gonna stop us, nothings gonna stop us now

Geoff said...

It was the best work of Meshac Taylor's career...

I would say Hollywood carried Mannequin, but that would undermine the work of Estelle Getty and the guy who played Capt. Mowser in Police Academy.

"Sheeee's the dummy!"

Yes, I just quoted Mannequin. I will now put my head in the toilet.

Wasn't someone doing "Proctorrrrrrrrr!!!" jokes in the comments the other night?

The actor playing Lt. Mauser was Art Metrano. He has a FANTASTIC pedigree as a journeyman actor. He's been in Fantasy Island, Starsky & Hutch and Joanie Love Chachi, as well as dozens of other flicks.

Yes, I did a Proctor joke when the Dallas OL of the same name got an inopportune holding call (as opposed to all of those opportune holding flags teams get).

Geoff said...

Hey Gil, you couldn't have put down the Wii and done this sooner?

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Gilbert Arenas of the Washington Wizards will miss the first month of the season after undergoing a surgical procedure on his left knee Wednesday, according to a story in the Washington Post.

Geoff said...

Is that article from last summer? Are effing kidding me?

TJ said...

No sir...just saw it 5 minutes ago.

Mark said...

I think its safe to say that Gilbert is never going to be the same player that he was, which is a damn shame since he seemed to be entering his prime before these persistent, nagging knee injuries. While none of them have been career wrecking alone, his insistence on coming back (too) quickly each time and the sheer number of surgeries/setbacks would lead you to believe we've seen the very best of Gilbert.

Geoff said...

Well if you're right, I'm certainly glad the team inked him to a new $100+ mil deal.

TJ said...

Hey Juice, the spectacles don't make you look less guilty.

TJ said...

Hold on. Lou Holtz went to Kent State? How come he couldn't be one of the "four dead in O-HI-O"?

KQ said...

It's a sartorial homage to Pac-Man. How could you not see that?

TJ said...

Is Tirico a douchebag?

He is, isn't he?
